“Tales from the Home of the World’s Worst Weather,” an interactive presentation by Mount Washington’s Outreach Coordinator, Will Broussard

Worst Weather Mountain Tales

Climate change, hurricanes, sea rise and the morning commute are among the concerns that have Americans looking to weather predictions to govern their daily lives. With bitter cold, dense fog, heavy snow, and record winds, Mount Washington in New Hampshire is known worldwide for its unpredictable and dangerous weather, and is home of many weather experiments. On Sunday, October 29, Nahant Public Library will host an interactive presentation to explore the unique life and work of weather observers stationed year-round at Mount Washington Observatory.

Will Broussard, the Observatory’s Outreach Coordinator, will offer a hands-on investigation into how the mountain's weather works and what it can tell us about New England’s own weather patterns. This program will include interactive demonstrations, weather instruments, stunning photography, and video footage from the summit. The program is appropriate for adults and children alike and is free, thanks to a generous donation.

The program will begin at 4:00 and will be held in Nahant Town Hall, 334 Nahant Road. For further information, contact Nahant Public Library at 781-581-0306
